    Great views of the river and very lucky to find a seat outside on arrival. Had the plant burger and regular burger- both enjoyable but the skinny fries not so good. Friend says these are not the same chips as Riverside Studios once served.

    Booked table as was going to see recording of have I got news for you. Unfortunately evening changed due to passing of the Queen but staff were very understanding as I just stayed for a quick drink and a snack. Whitebait was delicious. A more varied light bites menu would be good. Staff very polite and helpful

    Extremely poor service, when we arrived no table reservation had been made although a table was found for us, we were then advised that they had run out of half the food on the menu and looking at the wine prices we wouldn't have been able to afford a drink anyway so we walked out and won't be booking there again.

    I have had better meals in the past at Riverside. This particular one however was not good. Ordering the roast cauliflower was a mistake. It was dry, boring and flavourless. Sourbread was ok but real bread would have been better. It is a pity the brunch menu is not available all day, as that looks more palatable than the main menu. The ice cream was fine as was my companion's posset. I got the table I had requested which was good. Service was slow but pleasant enough and adequate.

    Quick dinner for 4 people. Food was lovely and fresh, well cooked nicely presented and portion sizes generous. We sat outside on a beautiful evening watching the sunset over Hammersmith bridge. Service great with limited waiting time and food served promptly. Lovely little spot for any occasion in my honest opinion.

    Despite there being a liberal number of waiting staff, standing at the counter, we were ignored when we entered and stood to be shown to our table - since we had booked. We were told to just pick anywhere. We had then to draw someone's attention in order to ask for the menu, and when it came to paying we practically had to chase down a waiter. Luckily, the third one obliged!

    What a super relaxed but friendly place to eat and admire the view. I had the green goddess salad with chicken and it had lots of tasty dressing and croutons. My friends gin and tonic was garnished with cucumber which she really liked. She thought her chicken burger was great - proper chicken. Coffee was also very good. I'd go back

    Great pre-cinema supper - service was a little random and tailed off at the end despite having said we would need to be finished at a given time, but mostly ok. Food was tasty with good sized helpings. More vegetarian options that aren't too worthy please!

    The menu looked reasonable online but they were serving a different menu because of the heat (sandwiches etc) which was understandable but the food was very over priced. We paid £11 for a small average sandwich. The service was also extremely slow and they kept forgetting items we’d ordered. Althing it was busy because of the shows, you would expect them to be used to that but it felt like they didn’t know how to cope.

    took 15 min to get someone to take our order for drinks. I had the bream ( very tasty) which , when it arrived, was such a small portion I had to order a side dish. I would have expected the waiter to suggest a side dish at the point of ordering knowing that the main was a small portion. side dishes very limited! Restaurant appeared to have no air conditioning and no blinds for the huge windows meaning it got very stuffy and my guests got blinded by the fierce sunlight.

    The food is always good at Riverside. I've eaten here a few times and always felt it was very good value for money. On this occasion I was pressed for time to eat before the show, and I was highly impressed by the service. Not just the speed, but the intuition and competence of the staff. I'm glad Riverside has managed to attract and hold onto such professionals in these difficult times.

    Although the riverside didn’t seem to know about our reservation. They quickly located us at a table overlooking the Thames. Food was of a very high standard I had Bream, portions fairly small so I ordered side. My niece had a riverside burger also v good. Waitress was very nice and efficient. I would recommend you allow about an hour and a half if you are going before a show. The ambiance is open plan and v casual, think good airport style restaurant, people drop in for drinks and snacks before a show or whilst out walking. I expected American fast food, and there was some, but the quality is very high, good ingredients ( no junk here) Views of the river are great with some tables outside. Maybe not a ‘first date’ venue. But worth a visit

    I go to the theatre and cinema at the Riverside quite often and the Bar and Kitchen is the perfect place either before or after the performance. My only comment is that whilst most of the staff are very pleasant, sometimes they can be a bit slow to greet and seat, even when it’s quiet. The view of the bridge at sunset is stunning.

    Easy place to meet friends with an affordable menu. They have just include poached eggs for brunch. Proseco Glass of 125ml costs £5.50 when the bottle is £32, so do your own calculations before you order.
